Your input would be appreciated Mar 6, 2006

The theme of the Powwow is oriented toward promote competitiveness and fair prices and conditions in a positive environment.
Please read: http://thereunion.5u.com/index.html
Quotes from countries with lower income level have a competitive advantage, so there is a need to find and develop new competitive advantages.

Please post sentences or paragraphs that could be integrated in an article, that could motivate outsourcers and agencies to prefer local Freelancer, what are the advantages for both the freelancer and outsourcer.

Please be assertive using inclusive language, with a valid presentation that couldn’t be objected and could be universally applicable for any zone in the world.

People from other regions will read it, and they should find it valid for their region too.

This message is initially e-mailed only, without posting it publicly to find out your opinion and recommendations before posting it.
Your input would be appreciated to double check any inconvenience to make it public.

Local usage Mar 6, 2006

The local translator is more familiar with the target language usage in the area. Case in point is the large hispanic population within the USA that has adopted the language to fit their "spanglish" language needs. A local translator is not only aware of these "adaptations" but is exposed to them on a daily basis.

Saturdays...
Fridays and Thursdays are difficult.
Lunch, afternoon or dinner is best.
A weekend in May?
(not May 5,6,7 - b/c that is the NETA conference).
Maybe Saturday, May 13, or 20?

I'm flexible Mar 17, 2006

I would like to see a dinner thing - but not on Friday night. Or a Sunday brunch might be a lot of fun. The last weekend of May is also out as I have another commitment. But I am definitely looking forward to getting together with my Conn. Interpreter colleagues!!!

I was also wondering If any translator or Interpreter from Connecticut was wiling to host in their home to me and my girlfriend a Georgian-Russian translator.

Both of us are coming from New York city.The staying will be just one night.

Unfortunately my house is not large enough to accomodate two overnight guests and I am actually around 45 minutes north of Westport - otherwise I'd be happy to.
You may try getting a room at the Inn at longhore itself, Very nice guest rooms, on the water, nice dining facilities, perhaps live entertainment in the bar Saturday night.
Or The inn at National Hall (a restored Hotel from the twenties, which was later converted into a furniture store, and after years of being closed was again turned into a hotel - on the river in Downtown Westport)
, or possibly the Westport Inn. Not as centrally located, but another option.
I hope this has been of help.

Thank you, Rod & Karl! Apr 24, 2006

Had a fantastic time at yesterday's pow-wow, despite the near-monsoon weather conditions! Met so many interesting people, and made lots of new contacts, too! Always a pleasure to get together with fellow translators/interpreters!

I too had a fabulous time yesterday. Ditto, ditto!
I look forward to making personal contact with some of my new friends soon. Let's try to meet on a regular basis as local interpreters/translators as was mentioned yesterday. The networking possibilities are endless!
